Sepp Blatter wins FIFA election and morphs into Borat!

Sepp Blatter, FIFA, FIFA Elections, Coruption, Scandal, Borat,
Just when you thought FIFA couldn't sink any lower after Sepp Blatter won a fifth term as President, the 79 year old appeared to morph into Kazakhstan's favourite son Borat during his acceptance speech.

Addressing the crowd in Zurich despite calls for him to stand down as the head of FIFA from all corners of the football world following the recent corruption scandal that has rocked world football's governing, Blatter took to the stage to address the audience at the FIFA congress and in celebrating victory he decided to use a few of Borat's well-known catchphrases...

Ever wondered what it would be like if Family Guy sang Uptown Funk? Step forward Mikey Bolt...

Mikey Bolt, Uptown Funk, Family Guy, Cartoon Characters, YouTube,
Mikey Bolt, you sir are a frinkin' genius! If ever there was a reason why YouTube exists, it's not because we want to see some baby bite his kid brothers finger, it's because we want to know what it would sound like to hear Stewie Griffin sing Uptown Funk! That's right people, you heard me right. Don't believe me, just watch. (see what I did there...)

And it doesn't stop there. The LA impressionist has a whole arsenal of cartoon based voices to his repertoire which he uses with hilarious consequences. I mean, imagine Peter Griffin laying down the vocals to Pharrell William's 'Happy' track....

And his talents don't stop at cartoon characters doing songs, he does pranks as well...

And if you like what you have seen here, there is plenty more over at his YouTube channel so make sure you check it out!

The Office: Middle Earth - SNL take a bow son!

The Hobbit, The Office, Middle Earth, Saturday Night Live
US comedy show Saturday Night Live has come up with an absolute corker with this mash-up of The Hobbit vs The Office! Actor Martin Freeman and the rest of the SNL cast should all take a bow for this piece of genius. That's enough words - all you have to do is just sit back, watch and laugh your little Hobbit feet off...

STOP THE PRESS! John Terry was a photobomb star way back in 2004!

They say you can't keep a good man down and those rules certainly apply when you put the words 'photobomb', 'John' and 'Terry' together. Fresh from his full-kit exploits at two European finals and then turning up everywhere from the Royal Wedding to the Oscars, it seems that the Chelsea skipper was at it way back in 2004.

Thanks to the power of Sky+ I decided to catch up on some old box sets, and last night whilst watching the first series of TV series Lost I only went a spotted the man known as JT who was guest starring in episode 20. You don't believe me? Well check this out...

Just when I thought things couldn't get any worse for Everton, Justin Bieber puts the boot in!

It's fair to say that my beloved Everton have had a pretty torrid Christmas period. Four defeats in a row, lightweight in defence, no killer instinct in front of goal and just four points off the friggin' relegation zone. It's enough to make even the most staunch Evertonian to fear the worst.

But surely nothing could have prepared the Goodison Park faithful for this image of Justin Bieber parading around in an Everton kit this week!

I freely admit that I use this blog as a platform to take the Michael out of that team in red across the park whenever I can, but even I have to put my hands up on this one and admit that on this occasion that lot from Anfield might just have had the last laugh. In a week when Liverpool celebrate the end of an era with the announcement that Steven Gerrard will be leaving at the end of the season, the best us Everton fans can hope for is that Roberto Martinez doesn't panic buy in January...

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, Happy New Year 2015, books to read in 2015, funny books 2015, best books 2015, The Drought, Steven Scaffardi, Lad Lit, Funny Lad Lit, The Flood, books for men, Happy NY, 2015,

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you had a fantastic evening and the heads are not too sore this morning. The last 12 months have flown by and after numerous promises to publish the follow-up to The Drought in 2014, I'm quietly confident that The Flood will be available as an eBook within the next 6-8 weeks!

I have been working on The Flood over the Xmas break and I am now 90,000 words in (which happens to be the word count for The Drought). There are one or two things to iron out and tweak, but I'm going to be working hard over the next few days to get it finished. I will then be work on the proofreading and editing stage, and getting a few close friends to give the book the once over and make any changes based on their feedback.

So thank you for your patience and I hope when The Flood does arrive it will be worth the wait! Until then, Dan and his pals from The Drought hope you have a great 2015!

Best Christmas film to watch this year? Home Alone: The Horror of course! Check out the trailer...

Home Alone, Horror Film Trailer, Horror Movie, Best Christmas Movies to Watch, Chritsmas Film,
I spotted this little piece of YouTube genius courtesy of the guys over at Unilad. It seems that everyone's favourite Christmas film has undergone a bit of a facelift this year and Kevin McCallister could be facing something a little more sinister that bungling burglars on December 24...
